  • International Women's Day Across the Trust

    Published 08/03/22

    Today we celebrate all the women and girls within our Trust and schools who do tremendous work every day towards shaping positive futures. You are inspirational and we are proud to celebrate you all today! 

    Worldwide, 129 million girls are out of school. Poverty, geographical isolation, menstruation and pregnancy, gender-based violence, and traditional attitudes about role of women, are among the many obstacles that stand in the way of women and girls fully exercising their right to participate in, complete and benefit from education. 

    When girls participate in education at a rate equal to boys, the benefits are felt individually and nationally. The lifetime earnings of girls dramatically increase, national growth rates rise, child marriage rates decline and child and maternal mortality rates fall. 

    Hessle’s Year 12 A Level English Literature class have incorporated International Women’s Day by preparing to start their coursework and looking at different female stereotypes in Literature through the lens of Disney princesses 

    Cottingham had visits from female professional in the fields of Theatre Studies, History, Biology and Business Studies about their career paths and striving for equality in their fields. 

    These visits included Tamar and Jo, a Hull based dance company, who came in to talk about careers in theatre and dance with Year 12 and 13. 

    Holderness’ Sixth Former wore green and purple and took time to recognise local inspirational women.

  • Respect across the Trust

    Published 18/02/22

    Teaching our learners to respect other cultures helps them understand and celebrate diversity. This gives them a better insight into some of the traditions and customs their friends may take part in and consequently aids them to recognise and respect ways of life that are different to their own. Learning about other cultures helps our learners to also understand different perspectives within the world in which we live. It helps dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups. By teaching our learners that we are all equal and should be treated as such despite race, religion, age, gender or social status we can work together for them to live in a more accepting world.
